    product made in China -- manual warns that this product contains lead known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

    I have the B 80 unit FYI

  • kgahearn Jul 08, 2008

    My B80 machine continues to display the de scale warning and I have done it twice. Why is this happening?

  • kgahearn May 11, 2010

    I called customer service -- got 2 different sets of instructions on how to de-scale the machine -- neither of which were anything like the instruction manual. And NOW you think I should PAY you for a solution? I'm not sure the instruction manual didn't do more harm than good -- since it clearly tells you to empty the machine and leave it on for 4 hours! That seems crazy to me. And I'm still getting the de-scale message.



    I'd appreciate proper instructions -- and I clearly do NOT expect to have to pay for them. I think I paid enough for the machine.

SOURCE: warning of lead in keurig coffeemaker

The solder joint in the tubing. Personally, I don't see a risk but the environmentalists see a risk in any lead at all. The plumbing in my house has ALL lead soldered joints. Now, plumbers are not allowed to use lead type solder. If the water just passes over the lead, there is absolutely minimal chance of problems. Keeping wine in a lead crystal decantor will also leech lead into the drink but, you don't hear all the hype about that. It's all about making the earth green. Toy wagons are being recalled because of lead in the paint. I don't know of ANY kids who ever ATE their wagon.

SOURCE: I was concerned about the warning on the B 30 Mini

Due to current laws, all products containing components with known harmful substances have to disclose to the consumer. In this case the components containing a trace of lead do not come in contact with your consumable beverage. Now, if you were to eat the coffee maker in its entirety at a rate of say ten thousand a day every day for 1000 years you might have a few percent greater chance of developing cancer.

My Bunn coffee filter overflows during brewing. What a mess! Is there any way to slow down the water flow?


If this is a pour-over coffeemaker, you can't do anything about the flow. It's just gravity pushing the water out of the reservoir. But you can try using a coarser grind of coffee. If the grind is too fine (if you grind whole beans for too long in a blade grinder, for instance, or if you're using espresso grind coffee), the water can't flow through quickly enough and it backs up and overflows. Make sure your coffee is ground for a drip coffeemaker.

I lost my manual on how to use the self cleaning on my cuisinart coffee machine


Decalcification
Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
deposits which form over time on the metal
parts of the coffeemaker.
For best performance from your Brew Central
Thermal™ Coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit
from time to time. The frequency depends upon
the hardness of your tap water and how often
you use the coffeemaker. The flashing Clean
light will indicate when you should clean your
coffeemaker.
If the Clean light begins to flash when the
coffeemaker is turned on, it is telling you that
the calcium buildup is interfering with the
functioning of your coffeemaker and the flavor
of your coffee. To clean, fill the water reservoir to
capacity with a mixture of ¹⁄³ white vinegar and
²⁄³ water. Press the Clean button. When the self
clean light glows, turn the coffeemaker on by
pressing the on/off button. The Clean light will
shine steadily. The coffeemaker is now in Clean
mode. One cycle should be sufficient to
adequately clean the coffeemaker. When the
cycle is completed and the five beeps sound,
the coffeemaker will shut off. Turn the
coffeemaker ON to see if the Clean light
continues to flash. If it does, turn it to OFF and
then repeat the cleaning procedure with a fresh
solution of vinegar and water.
If the Clean light no longer flashes, turn the
coffeemaker to OFF and then run one cycle of
fresh cold water through the unit before using
the unit again to brew coffee.
Notes on the Clean F unction
Pressing the Clean button cancels all other
settings. If it is pressed accidentally, press it
again to return the coffeemaker to all its
previous settings. Pressing ON/OFF will also exit
the Clean Mode and turn the coffeemaker OFF.

Lead in the coffee maker


It does contain a small amount of lead inside a copper coil located in the electronics of the machine. This part does not come in contact with the water, heater or any other part that would cause lead contamination of your coffee.

This page has a great write up explaining it:

Lead


The boiler is brass, and brass is an alloy that contains lead. Grades of brass used in boilers like this are designed not to corrode, and supposedly do not release lead into the water. You probably already have brass fittings on the water pipes in your house anyhow..

Descaling warning


Try pressing the ESC button.
If that does not work, go to the menu (press M), use the up and down arrows until you go to Descaling. There should be a function in the menu to turn off the warning. While in that screen, try the ESC button.

Self Cleaning feature


I copy pasted from the pdf..

Christian.

Self Cleaning:
If the Self Clean light begins to flash when
the coffeemaker is turned on, it is telling you
that the calcium buildup is interfering with the
functioning of your coffeemaker and the flavor
of your coffee. To clean, fill the water reservoir
to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 white vinegar
and 2/3 water. Press the Self Clean button.
When the self clean light glows, turn the
coffeemaker on by pressing the flip switch to
ON. The Self Clean light will shine steadily.
The coffeemaker is now in Self Clean mode.
One cycle should be sufficient to adequately
clean the coffeemaker. When the cycle is
completed and the five beeps sound, the coffeemaker
will shut off. Turn the coffeemaker
ON to see if the Self Clean light continues to
flash. If it does, turn it to OFF and then repeat
the cleaning procedure with a fresh solution of
vinegar and water.
If the Self Clean light no longer flashes, turn
the coffeemaker to OFF and then run one
cycle of fresh cold water through the unit
before using the unit again to brew coffee.
Notes on the Self Clean Function
Pressing the Self Clean button cancels all
other settings. If it is pressed accidentally,
press it again to return the coffeemaker to all
its previous settings. Pressing ON/OFF will
also exit the Self Clean Mode and turn the
coffeemaker OFF.
